Post by Doug »

As an introduction, I will just say that when I first arrived at TMB, it was as a combative porn addict that was deeply in denial about a lot of things.  The Pornography section was the first place I visited, and the stories I read there really started a heart change in me that first led me to repent of my sin, and ultimately led me onto the road to recovery from a lot of other issues.


Since it was such an eye opening, and life changing point in my life, I know how valuable it can be.  I received love and encouragement when I expected scorn, most notably from those who had been deeply hurt by pornography.  


I also learned that I was not the only one who struggled.


I am posting here, hopefully to shine a light for the next person, and inviting all who have had their own struggles to begin something new, something better than shame and secrecy.

Have dealt with and still struggling at times with porn, it's great to have places like this to be able to talk opening about the struggles. Thanks for sharing your story.
